On behalf of the Canadian Persistent Identifier Advisory Committee (CPIDAC), the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) is inviting proposals for a consultant with expertise in persistent identifiers (PIDs), national PID implementation strategies, and digital research infrastructure. PIDs remain a cornerstone of Open Science and the scholarly open infrastructure, which are vital to the sustainability, accessibility, and values of the Canadian research ecosystem.
CRKN seeks a consultant to undertake an analysis of the PID landscape in Canada, identifying obstacles and opportunities, and considering previous national and international reports, white papers, best practices, and stakeholder engagement with the aim of developing an implementation plan for a 3–5-year Canadian National PID strategy.
It is anticipated that the selected Consultant would begin work in November 2021 and complete all deliverables by April 30th, 2022. Please submit proposals by email to John Aspler at email@example.com by Tuesday Oct 19th, 2021, at 10 a.m. ET. For more details, please see the full Request for Proposals pdf at the bottom of this announcement.
